Wageningen University gets the best score for the eighth year running.
International students are positive about the teaching and help provided.
The survey is held annually among all students at Dutch universities. International students can also have their say. They think Wageningen does a good job of helping its students with accommodation, enrolment and visas. The staff speak good English and there is a good range of English-language courses. The assistance from mentors scores less well this time.
As regards internationalization as a theme, Wageningen is joint first together with Eindhoven University of Technology. Wageningen dominated this theme too in the previous three years, with its own scores increasing every time. Wageningen's score went up again this year. But its rivals have not been sitting still either: Wageningen and Eindhoven tied for first place this time.
The National Student Survey was completed by 264,710 students at academic and applied universities. The number of respondents at Wageningen this year was 3,571, compared with 2,866 last year. The survey is used as input for the Study Guide, the website studiekeuze123.nl and Elsevier magazine's annual education issue.
